UID for running user is not 0-checkpoint-all

Vendor: checkpoint

OS: all

Description:
It is critical to make sure running user’s UID is 0 so they have root access. Without root access, interrogation and some commands might fail to execute correctly.

Remediation Steps:
Remove user configured for this device and re-add this device with an user with UID 0. To find out UID value for a particular user, run ‘id [username]’ on the terminal of the device.

How does this work?
Run “id” command to find the UID value of the user.

Why is this important?
A lot of Check Point commands require the user to have root access (UID 0) in order to be executed successfully. During interrogation, a script might fail to recognize the device, because interrogation was not run with a user with root access. This might cause a device to be tagged incorrectly.

Without Indeni how would you find this?
An administrator could login and manually run the “id” command to find the UID of the current user
